This is a digital copy of a book tliat was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project 
to make the world's books discoverable online. 

It has survived long enough for the copyright to expire and the book to enter the public doinain. A public domain book is one that was never subject 
to copyright or whose legal copyright term has expired. Whether a book is in the public domain may vaiy country to counti^y. Public domain books 
are our gateways to the past, representing a wealth of history, culture and knowledge that's often difficult to discover. 

Marks, notations and other marginalia present in the original volume will appear in this file - a reminder of this book's long journey from the 
publisher to a library and finally to you. 

Usage guidelines 

Google is proud to partner with libraries to digitize public domain materials and make them widely accessible. Public domain books belong to the 
public and we are merely their custodians. Nevertheless, this work is expensive, so in order to keep providing this resource, we have taken steps to 
prevent abuse by commercial parties, including placing technical restrictions on automated quen'ing. 

We also ask that you: 

+ Moke non-commercial use of the files We designed Google Book Search for use by individuals, and we request that you use these files for 
personal, non-cojnjnercial purposes. 

+ Refrain from aulomated querying Do not send automated queries of any sort to Google's system: If you are conducting research on machine 
translation, optical character recognition or other areas where access to a large amount of text is helpful, please contact us. We encourage the 
use of public domain materials for these purposes and may be able to help. 

+ Maintain attribution The Google "watermark" you see on each file is essential for informing people about this project and helping them find 
additional materials through Google Book Search. Please do not remove it. 

+ Keep it legal Whatever your use. remember that you are responsible for ensuring that what you are doing is legal. Do not assume that just 
because we believe a book is in the public domain for users in the United States, that the work is also in the public domain for users in other 
countries. Whether a book is still in copyright varies from country to country, and we can't offer guidance on whether any specific use of 
any specific book is allowed. Please do not assume that a book's appearance in Google Book Search means it can be used in any manner 
anywhere in the world. Copyright infringement liability can be quite severe. 

About Google Book Search

discover the world's books while helping authors and publishers reach new audiences. You can search through the full text of this book on the web

Id commeDciog (he lOOlh Part, ud a dcw Tolume of tbis work, the con. 
ductora of it venture upon m few introduclgry remftrka; the object pro- 
poted IB not, bowever, merel; to offer ihe courtesiea of BalutaiioD, (hoasb, 
were it no more, we might well be escased — at a Mason of nnifersal 
greeliDg and goodwill— for expresuog to tboae wbo hare accompanied 
US, and tboM who bate uaiated ai in the pnueeutioD of our task, wilt 
how moch gratification we arrive at thii epoch of it, and commence n new 
portion of our laboura. 

In a periodical devoted, not to the general pnrpoBcg of Uteratore, but to 
the pabtication of ioformation on epeciflc lubjecta, and these of a very 
extended and frequently complicated natare, the reader has a right to 
expect that Iho mode of Hlectiog and com muaicaUng information ahoa Id 
be gnided bj certuin fixed principles ; for it is certain that, were no other 
ralea adopted in conducting stich a work as Ibis, than that of setting down 
wfaalever appears to possess a passing Interest, and that of recording the 
informalion jost as it is supplied to ns, the reader would no longer find 
what be would most aoxiousi; setk for in these pages, professional In- 
formalion selected for its intrinsic importance, and referred to certain 
fixed principles as test* of it* value and accuracy. 

In Ekcinferino, the first branch of onr labors, It Is b; no mean* difficult 
to explain the rales here adopted. The theory of the operations of the 
engiueer belongs, fortaoately, to a philosophy the most accurate aod 
complete, of all which the range of hnmao thought encompa*se*--ibe 
philosophy of motion and equilibrium; and the application of this pbi- 
losophy to. practical mechanic* is founded on a aystem of experimental 
knowledge, far exceeding in extent and the uniformity of its reaults 
all that bos been obtained in other practical an*. For while, on the 
Mie hand, none of the operations of nature bate been ao (occesifully theo- 
rised as the mechanical, and on the oiber, none have been made so gene- 
nlly the subjects of practical iodvXry, 

In eiaminining, then, the labour* of the engineer and mechanist, we 
have lint to see how far their uolions accord with the pure theory ; se- 
coBdly, how far the details oT their works stand the test of experience. 
There once prevailed, unfortonately, an idea that the theory ud practice 
of mechanics were inconaisteBt with each other ; but the new and conslantl j 
iacreuing reqniremeoU of modern engineering are now fast dissipating 
the error ; for, white the theoretical student finds it impossible to render 
Ua knowledge available wilhont actual experience, the practical ope. 

Jfo. 100.— Ydi. UL—Jamvamj, IB4C. 

rator f>«qnently flnds, from the rapid advances of modem engineering, that 
he is placed in circumstances altogether new to him— discovers that hi* 
notions of the lavs of mechenics picked up here aud there, without any 
system, and generally mixed up with a vast amount of eilraoeous matter 
will not always suffice, and that he must frequently submit bis judgment, 
in a measure at least, to that af the theorist. 

It is quite true that the actual operations of engineering generally de- 
peud on natural laws so complicated as to render direct mathematicil 
investigations, either impossible, or rendered possible only by hypothe- 
tical si mpUG cations of the cases examined. It is oot, tfaeiefore, to the 
immediate results of mathematics, thai we are to look for the most general 
benrfit derivable from pure theory, though even here how much has been 
done for the assistance of the engineer, laboara such as those of tjoulomb, 
Poncelte, De Pambour, HodgkJowm, Moseley, aud Professor Willis 
amply testify. But there is another far mote common benefit which the 
engineer will derive from mathematical knowledge, which, if duly con- 
sidered, ought to remove from the raind of tbc practical student all cutdnea* 
and suspicion respecting the results of iheoreUcal mechanics. 

It is not to be expected that an engineer, however high his malhena- 
dcal attainments, could determine, numerically, the velocity of every 
engine he constructs, the pressure on every tunnel, or revetement wall 
which be builda ; but this is certain, that his mathematical education will 
have BO tt/Mttmaturd and fintplffitd hi* mechanical conceptions, that he 
ivill examine his works far mora critically than he possibly would, were 
bis pbyucal notions derived merely from his own experience or popular 
ireatises. It may be unhesitatingly affirmed that the perspicuous genernl 
aisight iulo the laws of mechanics, afforded by the study of mathematics, 
is not to be obUined by discursive reading and casual experience bow< 
ever extensive or varied in iis nature. It were easy enough to give in- 
atuces of men eminent for ibeir practical labours, who, from lack of syste- 
matic knowledge, frequently ulter notions the most confused on mechanical 
subjects ; or— to refer to more immediate instances — we might, from onr 
own pages, point out repeated cases of invenlora obtaining patents for the 
supposed attaiument of physical impoasibilitiea. 

That chief value of the mathematical theory of mechaoica to the prac- 
tical engineer would seem then to be, not so much the prediction of the 
exact result of his laboura, as the general guidance afforded to him io 
conducting them— the knowledge by which, without the toil of eiperi- 
isent, be diatingnishes between what ia physically possible and what im- 
vossible, and is directed in choosing the mecbanical appliances beat suit, 
able to effect bis objects. Who can estimate how vast an amount of iotel. 
ieclnal and esperimeatal labour might bare been saved, had thoM who

[Jan VAST, 

the GreciBD Doric style, uid is the design of Mr. Thomaa Fisb Tijlor, 
Architect. The width uf frontage to the street is aboQt 40 feet, and below 
the level of footpath are two cellar itoreys, and atraie II fonr storeya. 

The basement, ap to the groand Boor window lilts, is of large blocks of 
Aberdeen granite, which from its hardneiB will resist an; of those casa- 
alties which so freqarntly disBgore basemenis of oor usnal soft stone. 
The reToaining height of the grsand floor is bnilt of faced Halifax stone, 
having Gegment beaded windows and doorways. Abote this floor are two 
pilasters and fourlhree-quarler columns, fluted two-thirds down, and two 
stories in height, with suitable capitals. The windows an in the recessea 
fonned b; the columns and pilasters. The architraTe, frieze, and cornice 
break round with Ihecolnmos, aod the frieee is enriched with a Grecian 
fret, deeply cut, and presenting a varied play of light and shade. Upon 
Ibii coroiceand over each column stand bold double pilasters of natural 
faced walUione, with tooled bases and cape ; on these, and on cantilivers 
between them, is the horizonlal part of the pediment, Ths pediment spans 
the eatire widlU, and noulil have had a much better eflect, if more boldoeis 
of prqjeclioD could have been obtained laterally ; this, I suppose, is pre- 
vented from a (ear of encruachiog oo a neighboor's territory. It is said 
that the origiaiil designs were for a fire-proof boildiug, and it seems a pit; 
that a tMildiag intended for the stowage of such combustible materials, 
aud ia the design and erection of which such pains and eipense have been 
gone to (though I uoderttaad the whole will not exceed 2,4001.) should not 
have been built on the fire-proof priociple. II seems doubtful policy to 
run the risk of total destruction, if a Gre should occur, for the sake of 
saving SOOJ. or so, in origioa! outlay ; — as the warehoose is now built (with 
wooden tnissed beams. Joists and (Mards}, if a fire took place Ibe whole 
would, ten chances to one, bv destroyed ; if boilt flre-proof, the chances 
are that one storey only would be burnt. 

A large wareboDse, of fonr storeys besides the cellar, has been bnilt for 
Mr. Carver, in Port land-street, from desigas by Mr. Donnison. It is of 
brick, nitb stone basemeot, doorways, window sills, and cornice, and is of 
plaia and sobstantial coastruclion. The same Architect has another large 
wareboDse in progress for Mr. Bebrens, of five storeys and cellar. TTie 
first storey is externally of tooled stonework, and has coupled pilasters 
between the windows, and a deutelled cornice runs below the second floor 
windows. A stone cornice resting on corbels surmonnts the whole. 

Messrs. R. H. Greg and Co. are baring a warehouse built in Tib-street, 
from designs by Mr. Whittalier, and Messrs. Taylor and Williams are Ibe 
builders. The basement is externally of vermicniated stonework. The 
first storey is of good tuoled ashlar, with a dentelled cornice. The upper 
part of the warehouse will be of best brick with handsome stone quoins, 
and all the windows will have moulded stone architraves. It is intended 
to place an elaborate stone cornice at the (op. The whole is fireproof and 
of good sireoglh, and I understand that the cost cannot be less than S.OOOJ. 

Mr. Lane, the Architect, is at the present time employed in entirely re- 
modelling the old " Queen's Theatre," in Spring Gardens,aad from what I 
can learn of the alterations it seems likely that a most convenient and 
beautiful interior will be the result. The walls of the hoilding have been 
underset, the stage and pit lowered five or six feet below the original level, 
the pit extended under the boxes, sod tha stage enlai^ed. It ts intended 
to erect a new proscenium, and to alter the whole decorative character of 
the huuie, Mr. Bellhouse's workmen are now busily proceeding with the 
alterations, and it is intended that all shall be ready for an opening in 

March nexL 

The Manchester Commebcial Schools are uow nearly fioished, and 
are to be opened in January next. They have been bnilt onder the 
auspices of the Church Education Society, from the designs of Messrs. 
Holdeo, Architects, on a plot of gronnd in the Stretford New Road. The 
building is three storeys high, and in the Tudor style of architecture. The 
front is of stone, and the first story has two entrance doorways, with three 
windows between them, the centre one a triplet, and the others doable 
windows, with fiat or four-centred arches ; the second story has an oriel 
window with enriched paaneLng above and below,«nd two smaller windows 
with hood mouldings on each side of it ; the upper storey has a large 
window in the centre, with a depressed four-centred arch, aod rich tracery 
ia the head, aod two smaller windows with hood mouldings on each side. 
The ground floor cootains the assistant-master's offices, porter's residence, 
&c., and also a covered play-ground, about A3 feet by 30 feet, commnni- 
aaitng'wiiha spacious play-yard. Hie second floor is let apart as four 

claes-rooms, a large ball, and a book aod model room. The whole of tka 
npper floor will be occupied as the geoeral school room, S6 feet by 43 feat, 
and as the roof is open to the rafters the room is an air; one. In tfaeae 
schools a good chnrch and commercial education will be affonled to Ibt 
youth of the middle classes upon reasonable terms. 

The Roby Day and Sunday Schools, for children of the iDdependent 
denomination, situate io Ajtoun -street, were built a short time ago from 
designs by Mr. A. W. Mills, Architect. The building is in the Elieabetbao 
style, and of best brick and stone. Considerable skill Is displayed in Uie 
arrangement for supporting the bnllding so as not to interfere with the 
burial ground over which it is erected ; tha front wall goes down to good 
brick foundations, but the bsck part is carried on iron pillars and beams. 
There are three gales into the ysrd through the lower part of the front wall, 
and also other smaller arches which are filled in with ornamental iron- 
work. Above are three projecting oriel windows of two storeys; the front 
is surmounted by ornamenial gables. The internal arrangements are 
spacious and well ventilated. 

RomiM Catholu Church, Satford. 

The largest ecclesiastical building in the oeighbourbood of Manchester 
at this time in progress, is the edifice being built b; the Romanists in 
Chapel-street, Salfurd, from designs by Messrs. Hadfield and Weightmap, 
ofSheflietd. The general plan is cmclform, with a central tower and 
loft; spire. The cardinal points have not been regarded in the placing of 
the building, as the chancel is towards the north. On the south side of the 
lower projects the nave, which is divided into four bays, and has a loft; 
clerestory. The principal entrance doorway is at the end of the aave. 
On the north side are the choir and chancel, which are now intended to 
be carried out about the same length as the nave. The original design 
showed it projecting only one bay beyond the tower, but a school-bouse baa 
been taken down to allow of the extension. The transeptal chapel u ou 
the western side of the tower, and will be lighted by a large wheel window ; 
there will be an eotraoce to the chapel from the outside, and the vestr; 
adjoins it. The transept on the east of the tower has a central entrance 
doorway. The roof of the choir will be groined iu wood, and that of the 
nave framed in square paneb, aod painted in light colours by Bulmer, 
Sticklers for orthodoxy and correct imitation will discover little to cavil 
at io the details of the work, such as tracer; of windows, arch mouldings. 
See. ; they are generally copied from Howden church, Ycffkshira, or from 
contemporaneous structures ; indeed the princiiile of imitation seems to 
have been carried too exactly throughoni, fur the laost^tabordts mouldings 
of that exquisitely delicate period of architecture tiie early decorated, ara 
given in places where a simplification of them would have produced aa 
adequate eflfect; if this be an error, however, it is on the right side. 
Newark furaishes a model for the spire, Howdeo for the nave, and Selby 
for the chancel; indeed the last will be acuuutarpartofits prototype, even 
to the canopied niches over the columns. 

The Irish Presbyterians are now erecting a place of worship, sessioo- 
boose, schools, &c., io New Bridge-slreel, Strangeways, from designs 
which are highly creditable to|the architects, Messrs. Travis uud Maognall. 
The style eelecteil is tlie Gothic, which prevailed in England during the 
reign of Henr; VI. There will be a tower 80 feet in height, next to the 
street, which will be flanked by bold diagonal boltresges ; these will 
diminish in size towards the top, and will finish at the batilements with 
crocketled pinnacles above. The central enlranca doorway will hav* 
bold moulded jambs, aod a label finishing opon carved heads; above 
this doorway will be a large window with perpendicular tracery aod 
moulded jambs aod labels; similar windows will be situated at each 
side of the tower on the front face of the building, andin the back will bea 
fonr-lighl perpendicular window. There will be two side eutrancea near 
the tower end, having square-headed doorways with labels, Bcc. The 
sides of the building will be divided by massive buttresses into five baya 
each, and the wiodows belweeo them will be enriched with tracery and 
labels terminating on grotesque beads and shields, and will have a transom 
in the middle on account of their height. The roof will be open-timber«d, 
aod io ooe spao of 4T feet. At the back of the chapel are buildioga to 
be ased as session -hoose, schools, and residence for the mioister, the whole 
of which are bnilt in the style of the domestic baildiogs of the period. 


A mansion in the Italian style for Mr, Perciral, situated near Kersal 

Moor, from designs b; Messrs. Dickson and Brakespeare, is in a forward 

stale. There are two good specimens of gentlemen's residences nearly 

ready for occapatioo In Victoria Park ; one for Mr. Critchley, designed by

to convey to our readers sumeiliing tike a jiusitit-i: ide^ of this

of Inur.colunins or oimpnrlmenta ; within, and corresponding wiU)

The columiH lire of scagllols, or to be more exact, of Keene'a esmnf, 
io imitation of pohshed white marble t and the mouldii^ of (boir 
bsses and capitals being gilt, produrit a pi'cuiiar delicacy of enrieb- 
meul. In which tbe monotuiiy of iirnfurm wliite, and the apottlnsai 
ooeasloned by toattered masse* of gilding, are ri)iia]|y avoided. Tbe 
emaUature corresponds with the culurnii*, with this diiTi-renee, bow- 
evert that the f'teie being enriclied with b-isrelief, {copied froa ttw 
Bgio maiblea,) the Gguresare raised upon a ground of a hlua grqp 
tint. Tbe nllic over tbe entabulaMre is ornameDted with tweUy

the ceiling ortoof isdli^ded into (he sans number of compsrlomto 
by as msay rlbt, between which the light Is kidmilt'-d, the compwt" 
menta being entirely glared, yet not after the manner uf a sk^.tght. 
but sonsto pradnee the appearanee of a traniparcnl roof, since it 
consists of fesstrta of cat-glass set in reticulated frjiningi coiweqaently 
tli« lighl la somewhtl refracted, and the raw look of a room almost 
uoeovered and open to the sky, [a avoided. ,

aaiiDiD of last yrar the first way, and probably mure, of Ihe remainiog

base of Scotland anil Ireland folly a third, more ihao those of Belginni.

The rails were furnished io 1834-3'i'36 37, and at different tiroes io the 
tbllowing years, in lenKlhs uf 13 feet, 10-4 fret, and I4» feel. Those of 
IJ feel were furnished of dilTerent weights, weighing 401 lb., 39 71b., 35-S 
lb., 4S-7 lb., 54 5 lb. to the lineal yard i those of 17-4 feet weighing 60-4lb., 
sad IfaoM of 14-8 feet weighing SO-4 and 488 lb. to the lineal yard. The 
wkila («iU are of the raBaufactore of the country, with tbe eiceplioa of 
■boat SOO Inna, which were brought from Euglaud in 1834, to serve as 
Aodela. Their price daring the first foor or five years varied very much ; 
Mdoabt from the competition to which the extensive demand give rise. 
Tbe loa of raiJa, which could be furnished at MaliueB,foriaslance,ia 1834, 
Iv 141. ISs. 64., roae to Ifif. 4t. fid. and 18(. Is. Gd., and descended again 
to 171, la., ISI. Ifis.) and came even so low, io 1840, as lOl. 6d., but rose 
again the Mme year to 111. Sf. Od. Those, however, produced in 1840 
win mncb inferior to tbe rails first manufactured in the country. Until 
ins, ehaira, keys, and spikes, were furnished with the rails ; but since 
■hat lima tlw eonlractora have bargaioed to supply them separately. The 
toaof vbaira, in ISSl, was supplied at lOt. 7s., but rose the year following 
lalU. lSs.,aiid, in 1830, to 121. lOs,, 13J. 4t., and 141.4*.; and. in ge- 
aeral, flucloated with tbe price of rails. Keys and spikes, in I8S4, cost 
HI, 7j, per too, androaelhefoUowingyearlo24f. S«. ad.,2ll. Ua. fid. la 
liaC-7, tkej raried from SSI. 0*. (o 30f. Is, ; and, in 1838, came down, 

after many fluctuations, to 21'. 7s. 6d., and 3SA 19. 7d In short, tbe cost 
io general, likewise varied in proportion with the rails and chairs. ' 

Principal Work$. 

From inexperience or oversight, the section from Brossels to Malines 
was made npun so low a levfl that it waa often overflown by tbe Senoe, 
which greatly damaged, and sometimes even perfectly ubstmcted, the rail- 
way. The rails, moreover, were loo weak, and the sleepers made from 
white and pine wood. Frora these circumslances. it became necessary 1u 
ruisp the railway at least upwards of a foot aud a half, end protect the 
hanks, and form viaducts thruugh which tbe waters could flow. Theold 
rails were nearly all thrown aside, and others of greater strength laid down, 
and the sleepers subjected to M. noocherie's process for the preservation 
of wood. Between Brossels and (Joierraio. tbe groond on several sections 
coDsists of peat, and bot:s; on Ibis account it bus been necessary to build 
a (greater part of ttie bridges on piles, and raise the railway in some places 
13 feet; the tunoci of BraiDe-le>(Jooite is 16 4 feet of span, and 2i'7 chaius 
in length. 

From a short distance from Ualines the railway begins to ascend to Ann, 
The works upon ibe line, though numerous, are light. The greatest ua- 
derlakiue is the tunnel of Oumptich, which has been lately constructed for 
Ihe double way. It is entirely built of brick, and is 20-6 feet in height, 
anil 4S 73 chains in length. The heavy works, however, of the Belgian 
railroads only begin at Ans, where the railway descends into tbe valley of 
tbe Heuse, 

Thf Lifgt Inclint. 
Ans stands upi>n the west bank uf ihe valley of the Meuse, about 581 
feet above tbe level of tbe sea ; and Liege is situated io tbe bottom of tbe 
valley, aboot 358 feet below Ans. The distance betwitt Ans and Ibe 
Meuse at Liege is 4 miles chains, thus making on tbe lenytb of Ibe liue 
the general gradient about 1 in 60, To descend this valley was a matter 
of no little difficulty, aud it was only after many years' study, in which 
time numerous prnjecta were examioed, that Ihe administration saw the 
necessity of descending it by inclioed planes. Tbe plan adopted by them 
consists of two inclined planes of equal lengths, with a platform or level 
spaceof ground, on which the engines are placed, siloated al ihe bottom 
of the first and the summit of the second incline. The platform is about 
16| chains in extent, and the inclines 1 mite Ihj chains each of length, uf a 
rise of 1 iu 30, both of which are constructed with a double way, the one 
being employed for ascending, and Ibe other for descending, Heferring to 
tbe section, the railway proceeding from Ans describes a curve of 1 mile 
S7 chains of radius, and det^ceods Ibe first incline. Having crossed Ibe 
platform, it descends the second incline, and arrives at the principal station 
of Liege. Tbe Irums descend the incliued planes by gravitation, tlierr >e- 
locily being regulated by drags attached to the carriages and wagons. Two 
fixed engines, of 160 horse power each, are placed on the platform iVir 
raising the trains, which is accomplished tiy means of an rndltit ropt. Bo'h 
engines being siiuateil cluse tugelher, are supplied with sivsm Inim the 
same boilers. The system of signals, we are loM, they employ, is somt:-

the engineer encountered in the execntiou of thia part of the national lystem 
of rallroadi. 

It may be reoiarked, that, in the eiecutioo of Ihe different works of art 
throughout the different lioea. the workioaoBhip is inferior to Ihat of similar 
undertakings in this country ; and that also in iheir construction, due at- 
tention has always been paid to the fortifications of the towns by which 
the railway passes. 

CarWf and Gradient*. 

The carres and gradients, as necessarily follows, from the extent of the 
different liues, vary rery much, and present nan; of the resnlts which arise 
from their exislence on railways in general. The radii of the principal 
curves are as follows: — S*7S chains; 9'd4 chains, (both on the branch of 
Louiain to the canal); S94 chains; 12 43 chains; lT-4 chain*; 1014 
chains; 19-88 chains; 2125 chains; 29-83 chains; S4-8 chains; 37*28 
chaias; 3077 chains; 43*74 chains; 44 74 chaios; 40-71 chains; 04-68 
chains; 59-63 chains; 6^*14 chains; 671 chains; 6059 chains; 72'St> 
chains ; 74-56 chains ; 79'S4 chaios ; and 1 mile 4'G chains. 

The most important gradients are : — 

That towards Waremme, at the sUlion of Landen, of 1 inS41,of2 aiiW 
39 chains in Itngtb.— That towards Tirlemoot, at ttie station of Louvain, o' 
1 in 250, of t miles S8 chains in lengih. — Thai between Tubise and Braine- 
ie.Gomle, of 1 in 200, of 6 mites 47 chains in lengih. — That on the branch 
from Louvain to the canal, of I in 71, of S2 chains in length. — That be- 
twixt Jnrbise and Braine- le-Comte, of 1 in 2S0, of 4 miles 3 chains in 
length.— That betwixt Mons and Jurbise, of 1 in 209, or 6 miles 42 chaias 
in length. 


The ststiona throughout the different lines are numerons.and, in gener&U 
neat and coiDaiodioas buildings. Antwerp, Brussels, Malines, and Ghent, 
are rectioned of Ihe first order, and coniaios the warebouies and arsena' 
for provision and material. Ample accummodalion is set apart in them 
for passengers ; one large room being always devoted to first and second, 
and another to third class, passengers. The neit stations in importance 
to these are, BniKes, Tcmionde, Louvrin, and Tirlemont ; and then the 
minor stations upon the dilferenl subdivisions of the line. Afa lines was, 
from the very first, chosen as the central statioa through which the greatest 
uomberof pasaengers was expected to flow; and it was also fixed upm 
astheworksbopfor the repairs of the heavy machinery, and of the railways 
in general throughoiit the country, the workshops at any of Ibe other sla- 
lions being only of a secondary importance. But, nolwiihstaading its 
many advanlBges, Brussels has become Ihe principle station, and draws 
one-fourlh oflhe receipts ofthe whole of the diltereol lines. Inconsequence 
of this unexpecied result it became necessary to build a more extensive 
sUtion at the north of Brnssels. The stations, with the exception of 
Osteod, Bruges, and Ghent, are placed without tbe towns, for the parpose 
of evading the local taxes, which caa only be accomplished by placing 
Ibem beyond the boundaries of Ihe excise. Tickets for tbe trains are is- 
sueil from the windows of the different offices ; and, to avoid confusion 
during a crowd, stalls are erected, through which the passengers pass one 
by one, receive their checks, and return by a passage parallel to the one 
by which ibey entered. If the traveller has luRgage excrediog 44 lb. 
weight, he has to proceed to the luggage depdt, where it is weighed, and 
he is charged a trifiing sum perlb. Upon paying this sum he receives a 
ticket with a nniuber marked upon it, vorrepponding to one which is put 
upon bis luggage. From this time be sees no more of b'm property until he 
Bixives at hia destinalion, where it is broagbt from Ibe luKgxge-wagon, and 
the numtier marked upon it called out h; one of the officers in attendance, 
who returns il to its owner on presenting the ticket which he bad received,

consumed in 1811, in running over 927.0S0 miles, was 29.303 tons, or 
70'80lb. permile. This is including, however, Ihe quantity required for the 
re*»-reand JigAfin;, which amounted lo 4399 Ions, and which, if dedueled, 
will make the consumption 60'17 lb. per mile. In 1842, the distance ran 
over was 987,433 miles, and the total quantity of coke consumed was 
28,317 tons, or 61-24 lb. per mile. The quantity required for the rearrrc 
and lightimr was 5633 tons, and which, if deducted, will make th« m» 
sumption 51-40 Ih. per mile. 


The carriages consist of three classes, as they do in this country, but are 
much more commodious, and, in some cases, vastly superior In comfort. 
For example, second class carria);es possess not only windows, bat tbe 
seats are cushioned, and almost as comfortable as those of Ihe first class, 
though, perhaps, a Uitle less elegant. Even third class carriag<ts have 
covered seals, and very often roofs supported upoti perpendicular iron roda 
fixed at tbe corners oF (he carriages. Tbe seals are placed traosvenely, 
and without any proper mode of entrance, which is a great inconvenienca 
to passengers ; and Ihe doors are, in every casi-, unlocked, but are held 
close by a catch, which can be opened and shut from either side of the 

Tbe rate of travelling, generally, is about 20 miles per hoar; bnt oa 
some lines, un account of the gradients, il varies from 19 to ii milea per 

Power nf the Engines on IncUnet. 

The greatest gradient, wiib the exception of that betwixt Ans and Liege, 
is I in 71 un the branch from Loavain to the canal. A locotnuiive, of a 12* 
inch cylinder, and driiing wheels of 54 feet dianieler, can ascend Ibis slopn 
with a train of three loaded and three empty wagons, of a total weight of 
about \l^ tuns; but a lucomollve of a 14 inch cylinder, with conpM 
driving wiieelsof 44 feet, can ascend it with six loaded and three em pi j 
wagons, of a total weight of about CO tons, the rate of travelling in both oif 
these cases being three miles per hour. From a curve in several parts of 
this lint', however, of 3 73 chains of radios, it is thought tu be more «». 
venieiil to work it with horses. A strong bone opon this incline can draw 
a wagon of aboot six tons weight, at Ihe rate of 'i\ miles per hour. 

On the inclination betwixt Tubise and Braine-ie-Comie uf I in 200, two 
trains, of 16 and 17 carriages each, with a total weight of 8^4 to 9S4 tons, 
and a locomotive uf a 12} inch cylinder, and driving wheels uf 64 feol dia- 
meter, were unable to proceed in unfavoi.fHble weather. At anoiher tin*, 
equally unfavourable, an engine of the same size took up two trains of It 
and 1 1 carriages each, wilb a total weight ofabont 884 and 7BJ tons, with 
great difficulty. On the inclination betwixt Jurbise and SoiKnies of 1 in 
2S0, two trains, of 13 and 13 carriages each, with from 78} to 884 tOlM, 
and an engine of the same dimensions conld not ascend. A third, bow* 
ever, with IS carriages of 884 tons, succeeded in roouoting the slope. 

From these observations it was concluded, that the greatest weight wHh 
which an engine of a 12} inch cylinder, and driving wheels urGJ feet dia- 
nieter, can ascend either of these inclinaiions, is from S84 to U04 tons ia 
ordinary weather, but otherwise with only from 73J lo 78] tons. With ibe 
same of cylinder, bnwevrr, either of these iurlines can bs ascended wilb 
69 tons, at a velocity from about 12| to 194 miles per hour; or, niih aa 
engine of a cylinder of 14 inches diameter, about IO84 tons can be takci 
up, at the rate of about Vi\ miles pt>r hour.

The following rNDlti, u to the comparatiTe effectiva power of turf and 
enal, Ire derived from ihe working of the l^niilnvnie, one of tha itcuncra of 
the Inland Navigition Compinf wliich plj' upon the SliBonon nith good* 
and puieogeri. Tlirj have heen kindly placed in my handi for mj pretent 
ol'ject, b; Mr. C. W. Williamf. Before th« uie of turf irai inttoduced there 
was burned in a week, which compriie* fbitj-niae houii of work, twentj- 
four tona of coal, which, coating on an average at KilUIoe 15*. per ton, 
amount to 18{., or It. bd. per hour. To do the same work at preaent, burn- 
ine nothing bat turf, there are coninmed per week 315 boxea of turf, which, 
at 7ff. per box, coat! 9i. 12«. 7d., or 3«. llif. per hour of work — but a (hade 
more than half the co9t with coat. The enginei of the Lanidowne are con- 
denting, of thirty-eight incbei and a half diameter, and three feet and a half 
stroke. The uiaal velocity ii twentf-fiTe itroke* per minute. 

The box of turf contain! twenty cubic feet ; not verj cloaelj packed. It 
weigh* about 3} cwt. ; ao that Ihe ton weight of turf coats about 3*. Cd. The 
weight of 315 boiei is hence fifty.Bve toni and a quarter, and the practical 
value of the turf is to that of the coal as 24 to 55}, or aa 43 to 100. It ia 
intereiting to conaider the inftuence which the anbstitution of turf for coal 
in the Shannon steamers baa on the population reaiding near its banks. In 
the jeir IS39 there was no turf burned, and the coals consumed on board 
the company's boats amounted to 3,108 tons. In 1643 there were burned 
hut 724 tons of coal, altliough the amount of trade was much increased. 
The quantity of turf consumed waa upwards of 7,000 tons, which, at 3*. 6d. 
per ton, gives an expenditure of more than l,200f. distributed in wages of 
labour, by which almost Ihe entire cost of the turf la made up. The equi- 
valent quantity of coals would have eoat above I,800J^, so that at the same 
time the Company saved 600'. a-year. 

Those remarkable facts are well exhibited in a letter written hy Mr. 
%Villi«ms to the Board of Admiralty, which is subjoined, as it illustrates 
some additional circumstances. Mr. Williams's estimate of the saving is 
greater than mine, for, in the preceding analyaii of the reanlts, I have taken 
coal at a lower price than is assumed in his letter. The reason is, that it 
hai fallen since those results were obtained, and I have calculated from what 
the price is, whereas he calcnlated from what it waa at the time quoted i — 
" 6, Princes Street, Caveodiah Square, July 21tt, 1843. 

" Sir, — I have bad the honour to receive your letter of the 12th instant, 
addressed to the Secretary of the City of Dublin Steam Packet Company, 
inquiring, for the information of the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty, 
tlie proportiooate duration of turf to coal in Ihe Company's boats which 
ply up the Shannon from Limerick, to which I beg to give the following 
reply, derived from experience of the boats on that river. 

" The Lantdowne, a steamer with two engines 38^ inch cy- 
linders, at 3 ft. 6 in. atioka, consumed upon an average 1^0 
tons of coal per month, running daily (except Sunday) a dis- 
tance of forty-aix miles, at 18*. per ton, covering expenses . £108 

" The aame duty is done with 1419 boxei of turf of twenty 
cubic feet, about 250 ton weight, at 7d. per box 417 9 

IMfterence ID the cost of the fuel per mouth . . . . £G6 12 3 

" 2. The difference in weight is, therefore, aa two of turf to one of coal, 
and on the Shannon the diffeterce in price is less than one-lialf that of coal. 

" 3. Its proportionate duration may be estimated by the quantity required, 
compared with coal to perform the same duly, that hieing double its weight ; 
il& duration in the furnace is half that of coal. 

" 4. From recent experiments with turf in the experimental boiler in the 
Company's yard at Liverpool, it is found that turf can only be profitably 
iij(!(l when it is of the quality that ii obtained in good seasons. If bad or 
damp, its evaporative power i* reduced one-third and more. To improve 
the eraporative power of this fuel, however, results have sbowa that an 
addition of 40 per cent, of a preparation of turf by an improved method, 
which I have been engaged npon fur some years, will render it cheaper than 
eijal used with bad turf, or tbsn coal burned alone ; and that the same per 
I'l^nlagc of thia pr''*>ared fuel added to good turf, greatly increaaea its eva. 
|ii>raiive power, wii.n a very trilling addition to the cnsl. 

" From these facts it is evident that turf may be used advantageously in 
localities where it aboumls, and where there is an aliaence of coal. Care, 
hovrei er, must be taken that the furnace hari are lowered, not only to admit 
a greater bulk of fuel, but also to prevent too great a volume of air passing 
ill the ash-pit, and then through the bars. I may add aUo, that in burning 
tnrf it is highly essential that air be admitted in the air chamber behind the 
bridge, in coosequeoce of the rapidity with which tlie gaiei from this kind 
ni fuel fly off. If it he excluded there upon the common furnace principle 
the weiglit and bulk of fuel will be increased, the evaporative power reduced, 
and the cost pro port ion ably greater. 

" It will give me much pleasure to furnish jon with any further inform- 
aiioo in my power. 

" I have the honour to be. Sir, yoor obedient humble servant, 

" To Sidney Ilerliert E»q., Admiralty." C. W. Williaiib. 

I have already notice.., that from my own inquiries the best turf may be 
had in the turf districts for 3f. Gif. per ton, and as it is a fuel that will never 
be drawn far for any iuduitrial use, we may take it. per ton as the practical 

fr«m the " ladustiial Besourcea of Ireland." 

vitnc of turf well dried vrithin the raun of the central eoontiea. At Ac 
price, and allowing It 44 per cent, of the ealorillc effect of coal, the hone 
power sUouId cost 6d. per day, that is, one-fourth cheaper than coal. Hr. 
Williams, using the same sort of fuel as is employed at the corn mill, and 
paying 6if. per hot, but drying it well, found that, with a large working 
wa^on hoilf r there were 3-87 lb. of water evaporated per pound of turf, 
and that it cost 3«. 7d. to evaporate 100 cubic feet of water. Now this ia al

At a meeting of the Decorative Art Society, on November 2Gth, a piper 
"On Chromatic Decfiratious," was read by Mr. B.Cooper. He oommeaeed 
with a chronological review of various modes of apply. ng or using colour U 
Eg>-pt, and on the continent of Europe, from remote times to the end of tbe 
17th century. In referring to the stupendous and richly-decorated remains 
of temples and porticoes in Egypt, he commented nn the dull and opaque 
colours, contrasted with mat and burnished gold (laid on in leaves) which 
are found therein, and also npon mummy cases ; he described tbe eolour«d 
intaglios on ths walls, and the painted ceilings of deep ature, studded with 
stars in the temple of .Viedeenet Haboo, at Thebes ; he exhibited driwinga 
of Egyptian ornament of excellent design, and remarked that no progretslw 
improvement in decnrstive art is discernible in these works. 

The temples of Greece were then noticed, where colour was applied to 
capital!, friicc, entablature, and the backgrounds of the tympanum ; also on 
Ihe ogee mouldings, where honeysuckle, egg, and other enrichments were 
painted or stencilled ; and it was observed that, although no remaina have 
been discovered, it was reasonable lo infer, from the eminent atste of ptaaUc 
art, that contemporary pictorial art had arrived at considerable perfeclian, 
and the names of some Greek artists were given, on the authoriiy of Pliny 
and Quintilian. After some remarks on the vases of Greece, and the mural 
decorations of the sepulchres of Etruria, he directed especial attention to tha 
ma;(nificcnt baths, or therm*, of Titui, at Home (erected a, n, 70), and 
(referring to the ilUiitrations by M. I'once), he observed that the fresco 
paintings found there display, in the grouping, drawing, and management of 
dra|.ery, a reflned feeling and knowledge of art ; and in his remarks ou the 
colour ua«d, he observed tbat the decorations were execnied, most probablr 
by Greek artists. 

Tbe decorations of Pompeii and Ilercutsneum, being of the same period, 
were Ihen described ; but, aa might be sopposed, from their being provincial 
towns, they would be found inferior in execution and splendour to tlioie of 
the capital. The arrangement on the walls, of masses of black, red, and 
white, exbiliited a principle which was commented on at some length; and 
it was also remarked, that these examples do not afford an Bbsolute crite> 
rion by which to estimate the perfection of the arts of tbat or the precediog 
age. Paising over several centuries, he next noticed the early efforts of 
Cliristian art, remaining to us in the mossica of the churchea and palaces trf 
Italy; and after some remarks on the productions of Ciniahue, Giutto, and 
Leonardo da Vinci, he entered upon a consideration of the decorative worki 
of .Michael Anicelo and Raphael. 

In Ibis period of Italian art, the anachrouisma and diarrgard of relative 
proportion, in the parts composing arabesque or grnleaqne decorations, were 
especially noticed, as well aa the enrichments, similarity in design and 
colouriog, existing between the works of Raphael and hia school, and thoaa 
io the halhs of Titua, before alluded to, and which were discovered at thia 
time : « striking instance wa* exhibited, in the decorations st Mantua, by 
Giulio Koiiiano, and Andrea Mooiagna. (See Gruner, plate 24, and plate i 
of tbe Bat I IS.) 

Ihe magnificent decorations by the Venetians were next described, Iq 
which massive mouldings richly carved and giit, divided the surface of ceil. 
inga and walls ; tbe coffers ot panels being filled with paintings hy Titian, 
Tintoretto, Ac, produced a gorgpiiui effect. The decorations of the ceiUnr 
of the sacristy attached to tbe Uuunio, or cathedral at Venice were said to 
be worthy ot recommendation, no account of durability and spleudonr. for 
open colonnades in this country (such as at the Uoyal Exchange) ; tbe back 
grounds were of vitrified gold, and exhibit all the beauty of ancient mosikc. 
combined with the harmonious colouring and beautiful ornament of the siil 
leenth century. Thia century wiinesacd the rise and decline of fine art in 
Italy, and in the following one, althoogh we meet with some good artificen 
they were mere copyist* and mannerists, and not great artists. ' 

In diicussion, the terms arabesque, grotesque, moreique, &c., were argued ■ 
the modes of lighting, and the principles of graeilalion of colours oa 
walla of apartments were commented on, and a rvgret expressed that deco- 
rations in the houses of nobility are not sufficiently known or accesiiblu lo 
the inspection of decoraton and artists. 





No Urge tower can be couideied complete without ■ itiireue-tnrret of

ud en eeientiel pert of the conitruction omitted, under the ides thai It b 
either a ueleia appeadage, or au awkward and uniighily eicreiceatre. 
Both theee uotUna are estremely rrroneout, and io urging upon architect! 
Uw more general adoption of belfry turrelt, we wilt eiiiietvour to (haw that 
both mililj and tike principlei of effect luggeiled their uie to the ancient 

Belfry turreti are niually placed in thr louth-west. more rarely in the 
nort«-we>t, angle of towen; they occur also in the loaih-eait and north- 
eaat. Tbey are polygonal, and project half eitrrnally and half internally, 
and have ■ tmall doorway opening into the inside. They are carried up 
either to the height of one or two stagn, or to the belfry windows, and then 
weathered off with ■ bold and picturesque tlupr, or thry rise above the 
parapet, and form a kind of castellated pinnai^le turret, sometimes carrying a 
weathercock or other pointed termination. Very frequently they are lost in 
the buttresses, which are, ai it were, thrust prominently outwards by a 
bolgiog swell of the masonry in one angle, readily distinguished from the 
rest by its visihle protuberance, and by small slits to admit liB[ht and air 
air tato the staircase within. Sometimes, as at All Saints, Paaton, near 
Peterborangh, the head of the turret merges into a broach of the spire, 
wbicii gi*es an extremely bold and irregular efTccl. 

There can be no doubt that irregularity gives effect to a tower, or indeed 
to any Gothic building. Not irregularity for irregularity's sake— that becomes 
affectation. But such irregularity as arises from the absence of hy[iocrisy, 
or show, or making one aide the same as the other, or the like. Theie ia no 
need to fear a broken or shapeless mass as the result ; unif irmity ii far less 
pleasing than variety ; and the eye caa never be (ilfcuded in Gothic buililinj^s 
by a door, a window, or a bottcess, being fairly imahed aiide by the inter- 
veotioB of any necessary constructive feature. 

NMhiog was more fully felt by the ancient architects than this ; while 
■othiflg is more cautiously and timidly adopted by modern imitators. We 
hare aeca with much pleasure, in very elaborate and stilenrlid towen, one 
bdfry window placed quite on one side, instead of in the middle, even 
though the belfry staircase which caused this reroarkiblp irrepularily wns 
leareely visible OD the ontside. Examples of this are St. John. Kyhall, lod 
All Saints, Oskham, in Ratland. Sometimes, as at St. Wutfran, Craiitham, 
the splendid decorated tower of which hai scarcely a rival in the kingilum, 
one of four pinnacles is considerably larger and liijther than the other three, 
because it forma a capping to a itaircsae turret. Yet wlio slull be bold to 
sty this is a fault? We would say, by all means breakup niunolimy and 
aameneat of sides by tome such expedient ; and a belfry turret seems mott 
■doiraUy adapted to produce almost any kind of hold picturesque effect. 
Prom a distance, the lights and shadows, the peaks aud the broken liiie», 
are vailly imposing and arresting to the eye. Cln a near view, the buld 
abutment o( an angle seems at once to Dank and to pmp the stages of a 
lofty tower ; and on every p^iint whence the effect is visible, the mind is gra- 
tjied by the idea of ingeuiiiiy or pleased by the suggestion of necessity 
njde suhaervient to decorative effect. 

Some bclfrj turrets are corbelled off s little above the grnunil riiternally. 
Thb, though not a material difference of conitruction, is in he di.'|>recal('d, 
bccaiiie the tower ia apt to appear ovcrbaUiiceil by an eiCtcscence which 
emerges from the wall itself, and does not rrst upon its own ha-ii nn (be 
groaiid. Ve have seen (as in St. Peter, Uarton. near Camhriilgi) the suuth . 
west angle singularly prolonged into a wedge-like furni from the inli'rnal 
formation of a belfry tower ; aiid af;ain, we liave noiii-i'd the uio>t beautiful 
forms and enlargements of buttresses to i^lve scope for ilie stairi'aie. 

It is true that many ancient towers were ascended by Isd'lers. andia a 
few we have seen wooden stairs inclosed in vattled ur ho.irdpil lurrrla con. 
itrurted in the interior. The ascent to the floor un whi.'h the lii'll 'ringers 
Wienible. if above the ground, should he the belfry turret; though we may 
h«re repeat what we have often urged befure, that the eiilrnii' e to it should 
never be frnm without, independently of any other cuinmunicali.iu with the 
interior of the church. 

Uodern ardiiiects are generally compelled to construct a staircase in their 
towers; hut then tliey strife to bide rather than boldly to diojilay it rater, 
nally; and herein consists their error. We are inclined to prefer those 
belfry turrets of which three or four sides project externally, oonieiimRs cvru 
in the middle of the north or south aide, and are weathered off at the uppr 
or belfry stage, to those which are only partially developed from t!ie outside. 
The attention, however, of architects neeils only to be directed to the suli- 
ject, and their observation will abundantly supply fit models and devices for 
imilatioo. — Ecclaiobgitt.

Royal Exchange. 

December 16th, 1845.— Mr. Kendall, V.P. in the chair. 

Mr. Tile rem! a paper. 

" On the, Original Faiindalian and Election if Ike Rnyal Exchange, 
iy Sir Thamat Greaham, trilh tome Nalicct of the late Building destroyed 
bg Fire, and an Acc«mtl of the Roman Antiquities dhcorered in excavating 
Jot the Present Edifice." 

The firat branch of hia aabject Mr. Tite illastraled by numeroua extracts 
from the records of which the rurpnralion of London poeseaiea a rich 
collection, commencing with tbe original charier granted to the city by 
William the Conquerer, a document which he iQcideotally deacribea aa 
being compriaeil in a few line* in the An^lo-Saxon Isoguage. Coming, 
then, to iLe ftuihoriiics more immediately cunnccled with ibe auhjecl, Mr. 
Tite detailed the tranaactiona relaiing to the buiMing of the lloyal Ex- 
cfaaoge, througli the munificence of Ibe princely merchant, by whom the 
whole expeoae of tbe atructiire waa undertaken, on coodition Uiat the aile 
•hould be provided by tbe city, from bia Brat proposal to that elTecl in 
1S64. The purchase of the aile colt the cilizeoa ZfiKl. 17a. 2d., iaclnding 
freeholda, leaaeholda, and tenanla' Intereala ; and it ia to be noted that the 
former claaa of properly realiied abuut Iweaiy-tbree ycara' purcbaae — a 
value not Tory different from the aterage of later limea. The building waa 
completed and opened for u*e in 1607. During the proftresa of Ihe work, 
« qoestioQ apj>eara to have arisen between Sir Thomas and the city 
respecting tbe property in the buildiag, which terminated in bia aaau ring, 
after his own life, half Ibe profit of the shops aod other lenemeuta to the 
Corporation, and balf lothe Mercer>' Company i andit ia frooi Ibiaditiaion 
that the affaire of tbe Eichauge hare olwaja been in the baada of the 
mixed body calle<l the Greaham Committee. The appearance of the 
original building ia preserved to oa in Hollar'a engraving, which shows 
it to have been in a much belter style of architecture than Ihe Bourse of 
Antwerp, of which it haa been pretended it was a copy. Tbat of Amsler- 
ilain beara a much greater reaeBblancelo it, but in ihis case tlie London 
building lathe original, and not Ibe copy ; that of Amsterdam dated only 
from 1019. Sbortlj after tbe dcaih of Sir thomas Greaham, some part of 
the building failed, opon which occasion tbe members of ibe CorporBtiuo 
cndearoured to caat the repaira upon the widow of Ibeir benefactor. From 
a report made by the Uresham Committee, after Ihe destruction of the 
building in the great fire, it appears that Ibe arcadea of Ihe court were 
vaolted with atone, and that it had been necesaary to stay tbe supporting 
pillar* by transverse iron ties. Tbia report ia dated on Ihe 17th September,

speedily proeidcd by Uesen. Milla and Jerman, who appear to bar* 
proceetlcd io the plan of making out quantities, and giving then to Ih* 
tradearaeo to be priced. After aome coquetting on tlie part of the latter^ 
who profeased to deprecate any interfereace with tbe ofBce of city anrreyWi 
held by Milts, Jerman waa at last appointed the architect, and tbefint 
alone of the new edifice waa laid by King Charlea II., on th6 Mrd of 
October, IMT. In erecting the new edihre, ibe aite was conaidenblf 
enlarged, and it waa the wiah of the citiaena to diaengage the bDildii^ 
from Ihe houaes, lute Sweeting'a Alley, which preued upon It to tka 
eaxtward, encouraged by an olTer of (be proprietor. Sweeting, to dispose 
of bia property on Ihe moat libera) terms, and wbicb ended, aa such 
offen uioally do, in demanda loo exorbitunt to be complied with, 1^ 
tower of Jermao'a buildiog, which, from motivea of ecuoomy, waa cob- 
atrucled of limber ioaead of alone, yielded to the effects of time in 1B18, 
and waa replaced by a alooa cupola, deaigned by Mr. George Smith, 
architect of tbe Mercer's Company. With reference to the building lalelf 
completed under hia auperintendeuce, Mr. Tite confitied himself to the 
antiquities. Four glass cates, coolainiog uaumeraua aelectiun, were laid 
on tbe table, couaistiag of pottery, coina, writing tableta and atyles, K great 
variety of objects in metal, and a quantity of shoes aod aandala in excel- 
lent preservalion. The whole of these curiuu? otijects were found in oob 
apol, at a depth below the general level of the solid ground, and bedded Ut 
black mud — eiiOence ihat it bad been a pond, and the receptacle of mbtnab 
for Ibe neighbourhood during the period of Roman London. Mr. ^te 
concluded with a powerful appeal (o the members of the profeeiion In 
general, oa tbe subject of Ibe preaervaliua of Antiquitiea, and of sup- 
porting the measures recommended by Mr. Hawkins, in hia letter read 
at a former meeting, 


The Firtt Meeting qf the Society for the eneouragetttent qf Artt, Uamt- 
facfuret, and Commeree, took place on the 17th, in the great room of tiu 
Society, in tbe Adelphi, which was completely filled. 

B. Bono Cabbell, Esq., F.R.S., one of the Vice Presidents, took the 
Chair, and an address from the Council waa then read by the Secretary. The 
Council congratulated the aociety on tbe auapicious commencement of their 
ninely-tecond »etiion. During the recess the society had undergone a com- 
plete reorganiiation, and the new system of management proposed by the 
Council had been almost unanimously confirmed by two general meetings, (O 
that the aociety being ihui rewarded, ila yontb would, it was anticipated, 
diaplay all tbe vigour and energy of a new institution, combined with the 
stability and influence of an old one. 

It was tbe intention of the council to add largely this year to the value 
and number of the premiums. In the fine siti, the mechanical atta, the 
man ufac lures, agricullurei and commerce of the country — rapid improvemeota 
were in progress, which it had been the peculiar province of this society foe 
nearly a century to encourage and direct, and in which nearly 100,0001. had 
already been expended by it wiili great public advantage. In tbe preieiU 
session many valuable subjects were abuut to be otTured (or competition by 
premiums, and so large a number of important impcra were coining forward 
fur notice, tbat the Council beliercd the aiiipiciea uiiiler which Ibis session 
comniEnced were unusually bright, and lliey iberefoicbad tocuogratulateihs 
mcmbera upon the improved progpects of the Eociety, 
Broad and Harruw Gauge 

The first cammnnicatioa read (o the society was a paper on certain im- 
provcmeuts, in constructing Ihe Locomotive ^ngiae», and permanent Way of 
Railways, with reference to the quealion of wide and narrow gauge, by J. G. 
Bodmer, Esq., formerly of Mancliester, now of London. In tins paper the 
author examines ibe question of the relative oierita of wide and narrow 
gange j he aicerlains that the question ia not one either of relative aafetj or 
danger, but that it resolves ilielf ultimately into this qnealion, which gauge 
will admit of tbe most perfect means for obtaining high velocities with 
grcster regularity and economy. At present he admit! tbe broad gauge has 
tbe advantage in more powerful and ipeedy engines. But he then proceeded 
to show that hy placing the eylindert outeide, and by inereaeitig the firebox 
and the flue surface in the manner he propoaei, and .by adopting the 
principle of compensation as in bis double piston locomotives, high velocitie* 
may be obtained with security, safety and advantage. In short, that u 
powerful an engine in every way may be placed on tbe narrow gauge aa on 
the wide one, and one equally well adapted to high velocities. He ilien went 
on to show how the chief limit in increaie of power, and the corresponding 
incresseof weight in locomotive engines, consists not so much in the con* 
alructlon of the engines, aa in obtaining a permanent way suitable for the 
support of such enormous loads. By these loadi travelling at high velodtaet 
concussions are produced which derange the permanent way, anil are at 
present the chief aources of danger and coat, and tbe chief limit to the speed. 
He approves of the triangular sleeper, originslly invented by Reynolds, and 
he proposes to use a modification of that on a larger scale, as a longitudinal 
bearing. He alio proposes tbat tbe breadth of the rail should bc]!0 increased 
as to diminish the continual attrition lO destructive Io wheels, and procure 
greater durability. In the conclusion of the paper he suggetli that an ex- 
perimental railway ought to he constructed either at the expenie of the 
government, or of tbe joint railways, for ascertaining the beat meana for 
giTing tbe incretaed velocity wnich the public ore begtoning to demand in the

siUoli the old bullikrs icrupuloualy observed in tbcir works. To rxpress

Vtt muil not be understood In ciprrs* these Miotinipnls lu an tmrn'cndly

Btlsicnce of a widcly-apread error which is duiug tbe greatest poailble in< 
jary lo architecture, and which w« boldly aOlrni imisl be cerreeted before 
the constradiov atta can re^in their original excellence. At the aaoie

cellent works uf bis, as bald and eifcciirc in itcsicnai St. Michar'rs church, 
but free fron its faults iu detail. 

There is one Kood amnsciaent with respect lo Qie comfort of the future 
runErceallon of ttie new cliurcb which must ooi be passed ornr. The 
church is warmed by hot- sir pipe^, which mm contained in chaonelsin 
tbe daun covered by graiioft. There ts nolhiof; like eouccaliurnl here; 
Ihe pipea hunettly revenl (heir purpoic— ihty are nut aincraltd. but

derod inconspiaums. W« hsic nu doutit that the tilted coagrrgaiiiin who 
will frequent St. Hidia^l's. will prefer this amngemeni lo the delightful 
laTenlinM of the Cambridge Cauden Society, 

Tlie first slooe of Ibe charcb waa laid on the 90tK nf May |g4l, by the

The accompanying illuslratioQ represents the eilcvatloB of a Cbapch

Mlih respect lu the use of Ibe word " unchurehlike," we would 
thai it ttaa meaal lo refer, not lolhe admissinD of llghl by clerestory

that when a church is lighted by clortstory windows alnoe, either

be so enlnrKcil as ti> bccutne rery prarniDPOl feature* cf the arcbileclBli

The onissiMi of aisle windows hasalso (hit dlMdvantagr,(hal Ibei

trary lo preoodecii, fnr in ancient ciaoiplei lurge surfares of " dead"
